  • I definitely would not be with my DH. I'd have been with his polar opposite.

  • My husband actually works with someone who has an arranged marriage. I don't think they are for everyone, but I think it is still a good idea. Who knows with the divorce rate so high, maybe our parents would do better then we think??? But I love my DH, so I am happy where I am!

  • My grandparents on my father's side had an arranged marriage. (Their parents and my grandmother were from India; my grandfather was born in Trinidad.) But, I know a woman my age who ran away from India with her husband so that they could marry here. Her father had already picked another man for her to marry! I can't imagine it, but it still happens!

  • I've always wondered if families were more stable with arranged marriages. I think back then, though, staying a family had more to do with survival. You had to get along, work together, love each other, and stay as a family...or die. People had farms and huge families way back when. If one person got slack, well then the corn wasn't harvested as quick and little Timmy didn't eat. Sometimes that life seems more appealing because there is no questions about "is this the guy for me? Can we really make it for fifty years?". Couples grew to love each other because they helped each other. Etc.. Then again, what if you ended up with a total prick? That would suck. lol
